What We Do

Individuals with childhood-onset disabilities are living longer than ever before and require ongoing support as adults to help them stay healthy and active and avoid complications that can lead to health problems and stays in a hospital. The transition from the pediatric rehabilitation system to adult care isn’t always easy. A unique service created by Toronto Rehab and Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital is changing that.

The LIFEspan Service (Living Independently Fully Engaged) provides youth and young adults who have cerebral palsy or acquired brain injury (ABI) with a “bridge” between pediatric and adult rehabilitation services.

At Holland Bloorview, LIFEspan staff help young adults from 16 to 18 prepare for the transfer to adult care. After “graduation” at age 18, the adult LIFEspan service at Toronto Rehab gives them a single point of access for specialized rehabilitation with an emphasis on helping these young adults develop skills to manage their own care and navigate the adult system.
